Carnivores (Aaron Reynolds)

Aaron Reynolds, illustrations by Dan Santat
Chronicle Books
Fiction, YA Picture Book
***** (Great)

DESCRIPTION: Tired of being picked on for their lifestyle, a lion, a shark, and a wolf form a support group for carnivores.

REVIEW: With so many children's books and cartoons preaching that the only good carnivore is a converted vegetarian (or, in the classic sidestep, a piscivore), this is a book whose time has come. Carnivorous animals aren't any more inherently evil than any other animal... though it's probably a good idea to give them a wide berth at mealtimes. With clever writing and hilarious illustrations,it teaches a good lesson while being thoroughly entertaining for all ages.
